    Arrow Its A Poetical World - Update: New Post "Broken Boat" By Enhedduanna

    Following the success of the PW Blog, and the quality of contributions to our poetry thread, the next step for Political World is to launch a new blog for original writing - poetry, (very) short stories, extracts from novels or screenplays. Made beautiful of course by original photographs or art work contributed by yourselves

    The idea for the blog is 5intheface's and he has agreed to edit it with help from others as and when needed. The intention is that "it's a poetical world" will become a platform for contemporary Irish writings of all kinds and a joy to behold and read. It will be linked via the navbar and will hopefully, like the PW blog, It's a Political World, take on a life of its own, as well as adding to the forum.

    All interested members of PW are invited to submit work for the blog. Work (as with the PW Blog) needs to be short (blog length, normally), original, and not published anywhere else first. If not written recently, please stick the approximate date it was written at the end. Please send any submissions to 5 or to me by private message.

    If dreams were lightning, thunder was desire, this whole place would have burned down, a long time ago.

    Fantastic idea. Another form of the creative writing found in many places on the forum.

    The new Blog "It's A Poetical World" is up and running.

    http://itsapoeticalworld.wordpress.com/

    Please would you send any piece of writing /photo /image that you would like to see on it (your own work, not previously published) by pm to 5intheface or to me. If you would like to, you would be able to use a nom de plume, separate from your user name on Political World.

    All follows, tweets, diggs etc. of the Blog and its posts much appreciated.
